    get the public so disgusted with the GOP that we take both houses next midterm.  that's not really kabuki, but its not really an attempt to solve the immediate problem now, either.

    •  That's also the GOP's plan. (2+ / 0-)

      Right now the public is with the prez but there could be a dramatic shift when the dominoes start falling.

        ... to put forth these solutions which address the problem, in way most of America will see as pretty reasonable while the Republicans refuse to anything less people making over $5M a year have to pay a little more in taxes.

        I'm sure the GOP actions, or I should say inaction, will win them the $5M/year voters, but then they had them already.  But I'm not so sure those getting furloughed or laid off will have such a high opinion of the GOP.
